Six Pitfalls Employers Face with Offsite Workers – and How to Avoid Them

This On-Demand event was originally presented on March 30, 2020 (60 min)


How your organization communicates and supports your team during these difficult times is an opportunity to build trust and engagement among employees. Like any major change, people will fall into two major categories: Stress Response – fight, flight, freeze mode where productivity suffers – or Challenge Response – rise to the challenge by creating an opportunity to become more productive, which in turn will create value in the long run. The choice is yours.

This webinar will heighten your awareness of the biggest pitfalls you may face when your attention is diverted due to the current organizational change with teams working from home.

We will also discuss ways to avoid those pitfalls by creating a productive environment and investing time and energy into other work habits that will change over time. The value you create at this time will continue to reap benefits long after the virus is gone.

Attendees will learn

  • How to be ready for infrastructure challenges.
  • How to use the change in work environment as an opportunity to optimize workflows.
  • How to communicate effectively in a crisis.
  • How to avoid micromanagement during times of uncertainty.
  • How to reboot your meeting culture.
  • How to identify shortfalls in employee training.
